Dec 30 - Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Now that the holidays are drawing to a close, folks are thinking about cleaning up and putting away ornaments, lights and decorations. As you get ready for the new year, don't let your Christmas Tree go to the landfill to contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Give it a chance to benefit the environment.

Most communities offer some kind of Christmas Tree recycling program. Recycled trees can be turned into mulch or used to preserve wildlife habitat.

The National Christmas Tree Association offers multiple resources for those who want to recycle real trees.
